How’s the ice?

Post By: Rowan      Posted: 12/8/2018 11:09:22 AM     Points: 6    
I was wondering how the ice was in and around here. Planning to head up fairly soon, so any tips are appreciated. Thanks.

Last conditions update from yesterday reported spotty skim ice, still open water in some areas. It was warmer today. We need at least a week of solid cold temps before I would feel comfortable venturing out on Douglas.

Any updates with this cold front these past few days?

Heres my report from today. The lake is capped with skim ice. Middle section near the boat ramp is very thin, less than an inch. The far south and far north end had ice fisherman on them, not sure about how thick it is. Ice is still pretty sketchy. Will need another week or two of cold weather before it gets really solid.

I was there yesterday, fish couple hour and got a little tiny perch. I fish by the boat ramp and the ice is about 4-5"

4-5 inches thick by the boat ramp? last time I checked it yesterday it was pretty sketchy ice seeing how it was open water just a few days ago.

Sorry, I was there but I think I have a wrong location. This is a new lake I have fish, but the location I was fish is good ice.

Wondering if anyone has an ice update for Douglas after the cold snap on New Year's Eve? Hoping to get out there this weekend.

I just put a post up-
Long story short: Slow fishing, sketchy ice.

^ how thick? "sketchy" means different things to different folks
